A note about serious food allergies

This salmon seems like it needs an entire restaurant to put together, from the sous chef to the waiter putting it down in front of you with a smile. ("Anything else I can get you?") But no! It comes together in less than 15 minutes, in your kitchen, no wait staff required! (Unless you have a waitstaff like a butler and a chef… and if you do, can we come over?)
